The FDA recently announced that gay and bisexual men may finally
be allowed to donate blood after being banned for life since the
’80s—but only if they remain celibate for one year.
So straight guys can have safe sex with woman after woman and
still donate blood. But gay and bi men who have had safe sex for
an entire year—even with a monogamous partner—would still be
banned. Sounds like discrimination to us.
Sign this petition to pressure the FDA to screen all prospective
blood donors based on risk, regardless of their sexual
orientation or gender identity.
